Another ‘Fast and Furious’ Gun Turns Up at Mexico Shootout Scene … “Weapons from the Operation would Likely continue to turn up at Crime Scenes”
Remember this Barack Obama – Eric Holder scandal …
As Yogi Berra used to say,”It looks like it is deja vu all over again.” Another gun from the failed Obama/Holder ‘Fast & Furious’ gun-walking fiasco has turned up at a shootout between Mexican authorities and a Mexican drug cartel gunman. According to accounts, at least one AK-47 found at the scene could be tracked back to ‘Fast & Furious’. Isn’t this special, the ATF has acknowledged that more guns from this poorly conceived plan could continue to turn up at future crime scenes. Guns from this disastrous operation will be turning up for years to come, yet no one in the administration has yet been held accountable.
A gun from the failed U.S. operation known as “Fast and Furious” turned up at the scene of a shootout between Mexican authorities and alleged cartel gunmen last month, according to CNN.
U.S. officials told CNN at least one AK-47-style gun that could be traced back to the failed gun-walking scheme was found at the scene.
The ATF acknowledged that weapons from the operation would likely continue to turn up at crime scenes.
“ATF has accepted responsibility for the mistakes made in the Fast and Furious investigation and at the attorney general’s direction we have taken appropriate and decisive action to ensure that these errors will not be repeated,” the bureau said in a statement to CNN.
“And we acknowledge that, regrettably, firearms related to the Fast and Furious investigation will likely continue to be recovered at future crime scenes,” it added.

Why “Establishment, RINO” Republicans need to go … Who knew lying was considered a talent to be proud of?
The Hill is reporting that Senator John McCain (AZ-R), says that we should not underestimate Barack Obama and to count a man out of that talent would be a mistake. Just curious Sen. McRino, exactly what talents are you actually referring to? Would it be Obama’s ability to not follow the Constitution, to pass executive orders rather than have the Congress pass laws, to have the talents to force such a disastrous law like Obamacare down the throats of Americans, his masterful skills of backing the Muslim Brotherhood in foreign policy that have the Middle East on fire or would it be his keen ability to put a record number of Americans on food stamps? Would it be Obama’s talent to divide a country, destroy the very foundation that America was built on or the record spending and $17 trillion debt and counting? Maybe it is Obama’s ability to have so many scandals going on in one presidency, that must be his talent. So McRino, which is it?
Obama is not a man of talent, he is a man who is destroying America bit by bit …
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) says people shouldn’t underestimate President Obama as he heads into his sixth year in the White House.
He discounted Obama’s low approval ratings and said a sitting president always has influence.
“We all wear thin with the American people after a while,” McCain told the Associated Press.
“To count a man of that talent out at this point in time in his administration would be a huge mistake,” he added.
So let’s understand this, we are witness to a sitting president who’s cornerstone for his election in 2008 and reelection in 2012 has been a lie that Obamacare is going to provide free healthcare to millions of uninsureds, but it would also allow you to keep your healthcare if you liked it, would allow you to keep your doctors if you liked them and reduce healthcare costs. ALL LIES!!! Now we have a RINO like McCain coming out and defending Obama that he is some formidable individual, are you kidding me? This is exactly what is wrong with the gutless establishment GOP. RINO’s think Obama is a “man of talent” rather than a bold face liar!
For the love of God and all things Holy, please, oh please have the GOP 2016 candidate not be a moderate, squishy candidate like McRino and Romney … PLEASE!!!
President Barack Obama’s presidency in a nutshell … his greatest failure is his signature piece of legislation, Obamacare.
According to a recent Gallup poll, Barack Obama greatest failure of his presidency to date by an overwhelming number of 36% has been Obamacare, followed by not getting along with Congress and working with Republicans (9%), lack of communication (5%), lack of leadership (4%) and so on. When it comes to Obama’s failures, there is so many to chose from. You could have answered the questions of Obama’s failures, the jobless job recovery, the economy, real unemployment, record number of Americans on food stamps, record $17 trillion debt, wasteful spending, investments in green energy, the scandals (IRS-gate, Fast & Furious, Benghazi-gate, AP-gate, Fox/Rosen-gate, NSA spy-gate), Middle East Arab Spring, Libya, Egypt, etc.
On the other hand, Republicans (50%) and Democrats (25%) alike are most likely to mention Obamacare as the president’s biggest failure, although Republicans are twice as likely to do so. This suggests that even Democrats recognize the negative issues associated with the new healthcare law and its implementation. Republicans also cite Obama’s lack of communication and lack of leadership as a failure, while Democrats mention his inability to get along with Congress and Republicans, his lack of communication, lack of immigration reform, lack of leadership, and his inability to bring all troops home.
Hey America, did I tell you that you can keep your healthcare if you like it?
I am not quite sure what some of these media outlets like CNN and … are reporting that Obamacare in Barack Obama’s greatest achievement and failure. Take a look at the poll below, “Nothing/None” at 23% is #1 as Obama’s greatest achievement to date, the ACA/Obamacare is second. Honestly, one would have to be hard pressed to name anything that this president has accomplished that would be considered an achievement and benfit for the United States of America.
Gallup Poll: 72% Say Big Goverment is Greatest Threat to America Than Big Business or Big Labor … Total Rejection of Obama, Nanny State Liberalism
Looks like America might just know tyranny when they see it …
According to the latest Gallup poll, an astonishing 72% of Americans now say that “BIG” government is the greatest threat to America as compared with big business and big labor. WOW!!!
The PJ Tatler makes an astute observation that has a lot of merit, see the chart below and notice when the noticeable upward trend began in 2009. Hmm, what happened then? Of course this boost in Americans fear of big government has everything to do with the so-called “Hope & Change” that they voted for in electing Barack Obama. It would appear that the folks at Hot Air noticed the remarkable trajectory as well. He promised transparency and delivered something quite different. What’s the matter America, you have a problem with the IRS enforcing Obamacare? Personally, I think they need to start including the MSM in these polls as well.
America, wake the hell up and make a stand against “BIG GOVERNMENT” liberalism or it will be here to stay. Elections matter, get out and vote against it if you feel strongly against it!!!
Seventy-two percent of Americans say big government is a greater threat to the U.S. in the future than is big business or big labor, a record high in the nearly 50-year history of this question. The prior high for big government was 65% in 1999 and 2000. Big government has always topped big business and big labor, including in the initial asking in 1965, but just 35% named it at that time.
The latest update comes from a Dec. 5-8 poll. Gallup has documented a steady increase in concern about big government since 2009, rising from 55% in March 2009 to 64% in November 2011 and 72% today. This suggests that government policies specific to the period, such as the Affordable Care Act — perhaps coupled with recent revelations of government spying tactics by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden — may be factors.
I would also add this upswing has in part to do with a bunch of gutless, establishment RINO’s who think that it is more important to sell ouch their Republican principles and protecting “We the People” as opposed to retain their power.
MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry Says “Obamacare” Is Same As Using The “N” Word … The Liberal MSM Playing the Race Card as They Play Chief WH Propagandists
WOW, when I first watched this VIDEO I thought it was a SNL parody skit. Then realized this lib was actually being serious. I guess she went to that media/WH meeting about how to shill for Obamacare! Yup, NO MEDIA BIAS HERE …
Five years later, two elections later, record number of Americans on food stamps, real unemployment at all time highs, median household incomes at all time lows, job participation at all time lows, the Middle East in chaos, greater terror threats to America than ever before, millions of Americans losing their insurance, premium costs skyrocketing, scandals like IRS-date, AP-gate, Fast & Furious, NSA-gate and the liberal MSM is using the race card with the blessing of the Obama White House. MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry is saying that by saying “Obamacare” is the same as using the “N” word and you are a racist. In a cheer-leading Obama rant that would have made Joseph Goebbels blush, she suggested the term “Obamacare” and the N-word are interchangeable, claiming both were “conceived by a group of wealthy white men who needed to . . . render [a black man] inferior and unequal and diminish his accomplishments.” Hmm, what was Reaganomics, Romneycare, Hillary-healthcare? What about Voo-doo economics? Were all these racists too? It’s called political discourse you IDIOT!
How very sad that liberals in the media continue to try to divide America and make everything about race in an attempt to stop people from criticizing a disastrous law by calling them racists. A note to MSNBC and Melissa Harris-Perry that have you taken a look at how “We the People” feel about Barack Obama? There is a reason why Barack Obama is at an all-time low in the polls, down 23% with Hispanics, down 17% with Non-Whites and down 14% with women, are they racist too? Are the millennial’s who voted overwhelmingly for Obama in 2008 and 2012 racist too, 57% disapprove of Obamacare and 52% want it repealed..
HARRIS-PERRY: “I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years. And like it or not, it’s indelibly printed in the pages of American history. A word that was originally intended as a derogatory term, meant to shame and divide and demean. The word was conceived of by a group of wealthy white men who needed a way to put themselves above and apart from a black man, to render him inferior and unequal and diminish his accomplishments.
“President Obama has been labelled with this word by his opponents, and at first he rose above it, hoping that if he could just make a cause for what he’d achieved, his opponents would fail in making their label stick. But no matter how many successes that he had as president, he realized there were still many people for whom he’d never be anything more than that one disparaging word — a belief he knew was held not just by his political opponents, but also by a significant portion of the American electorate.
“And so he decided if you can’t beat them, you’ve got to join them. So he embraced the word and made it his own, sending his opposition a message they weren’t expecting: ‘If that’s what you want me to be, I’ll be that.’
“Y’all know the word that I’m talking about. Obamacare! That’s right! I said it and I’m not ashamed, and neither is President Obama!” (More HERE)
Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) Says of the Obama Administration: “I Think the Current Administration Has Taken Lying to a New Level”
Senator John Cornyn is finally on board with Scared Monkeys … Barack Obama is The
Lion Lying King …
Last night on the Kelly File’s, Megyn Kelly discussed with Obama sycophant and National Press Secretary for Obama’s 2012 campaign Ben Labolt about Sen. Cornyn’s comment that, “I think the current administration has taken lying to a new level.” In typical Obama/Saul Alinsky fashion, Labolt attacked Republicans for the failures of Obamacare. Pathetic. Then he went on to lie and say that Obama apologized for lying to Americans, that they could keep their healthcare plan if they liked it, Period! Of course Kelly was quick to correct the Obama mouth peice to say that what the president said was that he was sorry that people found themselves in the situation they are in because of something he said. And of course there was the typical “blame Bush” attack. What a pathetic bunch of people who just are incapable of telling the truth and owning up to it when they are caught red handed.
Come on America, I think it was pretty obvious that Barack Obama, Democrats and their minions mislead and lied to the American people.
Sen. John Cornyn says the White House has been lying about the attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, and accused them of a cover-up.
“I think the current administration has taken lying to a new level,” Cornyn said during a Google hangout on Monday in response to a question about Benghazi.
Cornyn praised the work of House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, who has tried to subpoena information and witnesses from the State Department. The senator said Congress should use “all the tools available … to hold people accountable.”
“It’s harder when the administration decides to cover this up and mislead and to change the subject, which they seem very good at doing, but … I assure you we’re not going to let this one go,” Cornyn said. “To me that’s the one thing that I find most aggravating about what’s happening in Washington these days and particularly about this administration, which is a lack of accountability and the willingness to mislead people or provide them just demonstrably false information and expect to be able to move on.”
AP-GfK Poll: What a Sad Commentary of Today’s Society, Two-Thirds Say People Can’t Be Trusted … #You Lie
When did “Trust” become a 4-letter word … Who will be the role models?
As the AP article says, ‘In God we trust, maybe, but not each other’. How sad. What a sad commentary on where our society has gone where Americans don’t trust each other anymore. It is one thing to have blind trust and rose colored glasses, it is quite another to have trust be remain skeptical and always question. However, the trust trends, or lack thereof have rose dramatically in the last 40 years. I think it is no surprise that it would be based on the Watergate years. But what has changed in that respect where people would think at the very least that their President could set the image of trust. But that is certainly not the case today as Americans found out that Barack Obama was lying when he told “We the People” that if you liked your healthcare plan, you could keep your healthcare plan, PERIOD! That coupled with all to many scandals like IRS-gate, AP-gate, Fast & Furious, Benghazi-gate, NSA-gate, Rosen-gate, etc. How could people really trust when they see all of these lies going on around them?
But it is larger than just politics. We need something to reverse the trend so that individuals want to trust others.
These days, only one-third of Americans say most people can be trusted. Half felt that way in 1972, when the General Social Survey first asked the question.
Forty years later, a record high of nearly two-thirds say “you can’t be too careful” in dealing with people.
An AP-GfK poll conducted last month found that Americans are suspicious of each other in everyday encounters. Less than one-third expressed a lot of trust in clerks who swipe their credit cards, drivers on the road, or people they meet when traveling.
“I’m leery of everybody,” said Bart Murawski, 27, of Albany, N.Y. “Caution is always a factor.”
Does it matter that Americans are suspicious of one another? Yes, say worried political and social scientists.
What’s known as “social trust” brings good things.
A society where it’s easier to compromise or make a deal. Where people are willing to work with those who are different from them for the common good. Where trust appears to promote economic growth.
Trust has to be earned, it does not grow on trees. And once trust is broken, it takes years, sometimes forever to repair. So, is it too late to reverse this trend? Some say that it is. Is it possible to go back to a simpler time and instill not only trust, but values in people to act accordingly? The question really is, who will step up and play the adult to make “TRUST” a valued principle?
In fact, some studies suggest it’s too late for most Americans alive today to become more trusting. That research says the basis for a person’s lifetime trust levels is set by his or her mid-twenties and unlikely to change, other than in some unifying crucible such as a world war.
People do get a little more trusting as they age. But beginning with the baby boomers, each generation has started off adulthood less trusting than those who came before them.
The best hope for creating a more trusting nation may be figuring out how to inspire today’s youth, perhaps united by their high-tech gadgets, to trust the way previous generations did in simpler times.
There are still trusters around to set an example.

Fox News Sunday: George Will Compares Barack Obama to Richard Nixon … “Has There Ever, With the Exception of Richard Nixon in 1973, Been a Worse First Year of a Second Term?”
So much for Obama being like Reagan or Lincoln, the comparisons are more like Richard Nixon … OUCH!!!
On Fox News Sunday during the panel discussion, George Will hammered Barack Obama’s first year of his second term as president comparing it to that of Richard Nixon’s second term. Will went on to say that he cannot even use the Clinton pandering of “I feel your pain”. Will opined, “It’s one thing for Bill Clinton to say ‘I feel your pain.’ It’s another thing for Barack Obama to say, ‘I feel your pain that I have caused.’”
“It’s one thing for Bill Clinton to say “I feel your pain.” It’s another thing for Barack Obama to say, “I feel your pain that I have caused.” … We this week marked the one year anniversary of his reelection. Has there ever, with the exception of Richard Nixon in 1973, been a worse first year of a second term?”
Video Hat Tip: The Gateway Pundit
Note to MSM, Benghazi-gate and IRS-gate are far worse than Watergate. Why don’t you actually cover them like you mean it! Hot Air adds to the scandalpalooza that is the Obama presidency.

How low can he go … after having lied to America regarding Obamacare, “If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan. period!” My bet is that it will go even lower …
According to the most recent NBC/WSJ poll, Obama’s job approval rating is down 5% this month to a new low of 42%. The Gateway Pundit reports via NBC’s Chuck Todd’s tweet, Obama’s persona; approval rating upside down for first time ever with 41% viewing him in a favorable light and 45% viewing him negatively. We have said for years that Obama’s approval rating would be in the 30′s if the liberal MSM just did their job and reported the truth and the news about Barack Obama, rather than be is propaganda shills. The MSM is just starting to fairly report on Obamacare and Obama’s lies.
Imagine, just imagine what Obama’s approval ratings would be like if the MSM decided to truthfully report on Benghazi, IRS-gate, the economy, the $17 trillion debt, Food Stamp America, Fast & Furious, the NSA, Energy policy, EPA, Obamacare and Obama’s disastrous foreign policy in Egypt, Libya, Syria and the entire Middle East. This man has been a catastrophe for the United States.
President Barack Obama’s approval rating has declined to an all-time low as public frustration with Washington and pessimism about the nation’s direction continue to grow, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.
Just 42 percent approve of the president’s job performance, which is down five points from earlier this month. By comparison, 51 percent disapprove of his job in office — tied for his all-time high.
The NBC/WSJ pollsters argue that no single reason explains Obama’s lower poll standing. Rather, they attribute it to the accumulation of setbacks since the summer — allegations of spying by the National Security Agency, the debate over Syria’s chemical weapons, the government shutdown and now intense scrutiny over the problems associated with the health care law’s federal website and its overall implementation.
As for other results from the NBC/WSJ poll, from the looks of how individuals feel about Congress, incumbent and establishment politicians should be a bit nervous heading into 2014 and 2016. The people may have finally reached the tipping point and will throw the bums out.

Real Clear Politics has every poll with Obama’s job approval rating underwater and an average of 43.9% approve, 51.6% disapprove and -7.7% spread.
MSNBC Strikes Again: VIDEO of Numerous Examples of Obama Appearing to be Left in the Dark from ‘Fast & Furious’ to ‘Benghazi’ to ‘IRS-gate’, etc … The Bystander in Chief or Did He Know All Along and Is Lying?
What did the President know and when?
Barack Obama was supposed to be the smartest president ever. Now we see a president is a mere onlooker in his own White House. MSNBC and ‘The Morning Joe’ delivered a damning video of Barack Obama, the Bystander in Chief, who appears to be just clueless and left in the dark. But is it really possible that an individual, the President of the United States, could be that far out of the loop and disengaged from all things bad and scandalous in his administration like Fast & Furious, IRS-gate, Benghazi terror attack, NSA-gate, AP-gate, and the Obamacare rollout. But at the same time Obama is in the minutia with Obamacare in acting like an insurance agent selling plans and getting involved in the George Zimmerman-Trayvon Martin case.
Is this really a case of Obama being a bystander, or his attempt for plausible deniability? Does anyone really think Obama is out of the loop, or are all of his actions intentional with a smile?
So what is worse America, a liar as president, or a complete and total incompetent? Let this be a lesson to all Americans why you never elect a community agitator as president or some one so unqualified to do the job.
